Verbier is part of the 4 Vallées, the largest linked ski area in Switzerland with more than 400km of pistes. This ensures that buying a Verbier lift pass is money well spent!

To start with, be aware there are two main types of ski pass to choose from:

  • Verbier Valley pass - the cheaper, local area pass, offering access to 200km of pistes; suitable for beginners.
  • 4 Vallées pass - whole area pass, offering access to four neighbouring valleys and around 410km of pistes.

In our experience, most people visiting Verbier stay for a week, which means that six-day ski passes are the top choice among skiers and snowboarders who want to enjoy our mountain playground.

Other passes in Verbier

Are there any other passes available in Verbier?
Yes, there are! Verbier offers special passes for winter sports enthusiasts and different subscription-based services to use the lifts.

Ski touring
A ski touring pass is available for ski tourers and split boarders. It gives access to several lifts, but only on the way up in order to access the ski touring areas.

They can purchase a single ticket to go from Le Chable to Les Ruinettes for only CHF 21 per adult, CHF 18 per child and CHF 11 per senior paraglider.

There is a fun sledging slope in La Tzoumaz – not for the faint-hearted! You can take a lift to the top of the piste and then sledge down.

4 Vallées Club Card
This pass allows you to ski the 4 Vallées area at a reduced price all season. The more you ski the cheaper it becomes! The pass is valid for one year from the date of purchase and it works like a credit card with the cost of your day's skiing being debited from the card when you go through a turnstile at the bottom of a lift.

You can buy these passes online or at one of the lift pass office. You get a permanent discount of 10% on full and half-day passes and, once you've bought your card, you don't need to return to the cash desk. You also enjoy special discounts of 30% and 50% on certain days (notification by email when these are due to take place). During the summer, enjoy special discounts on the lifts in the Verbier area.

Valais SkiCard
The Valais SkiCard operates in a similar way to the 4 Vallées Club Card, but is prepaid as opposed to being charged after the fact. Valais SkiCard holders charge their card with a desired amount of money, after which they’re granted direct access to the slopes without having to queue at the ticket counters. Acting as a cashier, the pass scanner automatically deducts the exact amount from your Valais SkiCard for the ticket corresponding to your age group and the time of day, as you go through the control gates. The card is non-transferable, and valid for two years. It is possible to extend the validity period of your points by simply recharging the card with a minimum of CHF 100 before the expiry date. You can buy the Valais SkiCard online.

Where to buy ski passes in Verbier

There are two main ways of purchasing your Verbier ski pass: online and in resort.

How to buy your Verbier ski passes online – A step-by-step guide
To save time and money, you can pre-order your Verbier ski passes online. The process is really simple:

  1. Click on the button below, which will take you to Verbier's main lift pass website.
  2. Select the area you want to ski in (Verbier, 4 Vallées or Bruson), the duration of the passes, your first ski day and the number of people, including their ages.
  3. Any discounts you may be eligible for will be automatically applied to the price of your passes.
  4. State whether you already have a rechargeable card (in which case you'll need to insert its WTP number – see below for more information) or you don't (a non-refundable CHF 5 fee will be added for the card).
  5. You can also choose if you want ski insurance or not – we recommend you add it.
  6. Create an account with your personal details.
  7. Choose whether you want your ski passes to be delivered to your home address for a small fee (allow at least 10 days for delivery outside Switzerland), or you prefer to pick them up at one of the ski pass offices in resort.
  8. Pay for your ski passes.

That's it, you're all ready to hit the slopes!

How to buy your Verbier ski passes in resort
You can also buy your pass at a lift pass office when you get to resort. The main one is located at the Médran lift station and has lift pass machines available even after office hours. There are also lift pass offices in La Tzoumaz, at the bottom of the main lift, and in Le Chable, also at the bottom of the lift.

If you're uncertain of the pass you need or are looking to see how the weather is before buying your pass, then this can be a good option. The lift pass office staff is also great at advising exactly which pass is best for you while some passes, such as pedestrian and beginner lift passes, are only available at the ski pass offices. Be warned, though, you may have to queue, especially at busy times.

About Verbier Ski Pass Prices

How ski passes work in Verbier

Ski passes in Verbier are loaded onto a rechargeable SmartMedia card, which is more or less the size of a credit card and has a chip that stores the lift pass information. This hands-free card is read remotely at the entrance of the lifts, so you just need it to put it in a pocket on your left side (many ski jackets have a special pocket on the left sleeve) and the turnstile will activate remotely as you pass through. Keep it away from your credit cards, mobile phone or other ski passes as they may obstruct the card reading. Hands-free cards cost CHF 5, and this fee is not refundable.

What is a ski pass WTP number? You can recharge and top-up your Verbier hands-free card as many times as you want over several years. In order to do so, you need to enter the card's WTP (Wireless Transaction Protocol) number when purchasing your pass online. You can find this number on your card. After you've recharged your hands-free card in advance, you can generally go directly to the lifts without having to stop at the lift pass offices.
